1-3 pm. The Little Red Schoolhouse was the last operating one room schoolhouse in the State of Connecticut and the school has been preserved exactly as Miss Kelley left it when it closed its doors in 1957. The Open House will be staffed by graduates of the school, who will recount stories of what they experienced as students in the one room schoolhouse. Miss Mary Kelley was a "neighborhood kid" and student of the Little Red Schoolhouse in the 1890s. By 1910, Miss Kelley was appointed the school's teacher. In one room, she might have had as many as thirty children in five separate classes, depending on the number of families living in her district. Class size never bothered Miss Kelley, who taught children to share, and be open-minded and curious..

The Klein Memorial Auditorium RODRIGUEZ

09/23/2017

910 Fairfield Ave, Bridgeport, CT Phone: (203) 259 - 1036.

8 pm. TICKETS: $55 - $85. It would be difficult for any music fan not to be aware of the Sixto Rodriguez story at this point. While Rodriguez always enjoyed a respectable if impressive following in Australia and South Africa, knowingly or not, the Oscar-winning 2012 documentary Searching for Sugar Man that told his tale finally delivered the erstwhile demolition worker the North American success that had eluded him for decades since he released the albums Cold Fact and Coming from Reality at the dawn of the '70s. His newly rediscovered (at least on these shores), psychedelically-tinged songs still pack a potent punch, from the soulful "Sugar Man" to the lovely "I think of You" to the playful "I Wonder" to the scorching "Only Good for Conversation" to the hypnotically ranting "This is Not a Song It's an Outburst: Or, The Establishment Blues." Featuring memorable melodies and incisively poetic lyrics, they recall such obvious influences as Bob Dylan and Donovan.
